The 'Ortspost', 'Poste Locale', 'Rayon I' and 'Rayon II' exist in 40 types (8 vertical rows of 5 stamps), each with position of letters and a different background pattern for each type. The 'Rayon III' stamps exist in 10 different types each.

For the types of the 'POSTE LOCALE', 'ORTSPOST' and 'RAYON I' issues click here.

'RAYON III small 15 rp and 15 cts'

The 'small 15' Rayon III issue were made from the plates of the 'Ortspost' stamps by taking the second and third vertical row of the sheet of 40 stamps. This means that 'Ortspost' types 2 and 3 correspond to 'small 15 Rayon III' type 1 and 2 etc. (see the table below). The 'small 15 Rp Rayon III' issue and the '15 Cts Rayon III' issue seem to have the same 10 types (with the exception of the inscription 'Rp.' and 'Cts' of course).
